Is there anything uglier than a human female? The Rygellian Slime Beasts know that their enemies the Cosmic Wartoads believe that there isn't, and as such knew that turning their queen into one was the worst thing they could do. Fortunately there is a Wartoad heroic enough to seek revenge, and that is you.

The player has 90 minutes to complete the game, in which time you must cross an 8x8 grid (from top right to bottom left, moving one space at a time) whose squares have a variety of functions. The action meat of the game involves shooting out the slime fired off by the Rygellian occupants of each square, which must be destroyed for the player to take possession of any square. The player has three lives for this.

Other squares contain enhanced weapons, and the keys which are required to pass blockaded areas

Bob Wakelin's Cover Art

In the same manner that there's a strong resemblance between Imagine's Green Beret artwork by Bob Wakelin and Marvel's comic The Punisher by Mike Zeck (1986 series) vol. 1: Limited Series #5, the resemblances between Ocean's Cosmic Wartoad and Marvel's comic The Punisher (1986 series) vol. 1: Limited Series #2 cover art is obvious.
